Want an answer? Ask God first. James 1:5


James 1:5 If you need wisdom – if you want to know what God wants you to do - ask him, and he will gladly tell you. He will not resent your asking.

 

Don’t wait! Buy it now! Grab the gusto before it goes! You’re only young once! Go for it! No one will know! Call that guy or girl! Blurt out your inner most thoughts! Let it all hang out! Buy that car…and on and on…

 

I’ve jumped into quicksand so many times because I didn’t wait for God or because I didn’t ask God what road I should have taken. Things can turn out differently if we stop and ask for God’s wisdom and then follow through. If we’re going to ask for God’s wisdom, then we must be willing to obey…

 

The key message is this:  Talk to God when things are going well for you. Pray before you are shaken up. And, you will be shaken up at some point. 


Ask God to give you revelation and discipline in the areas where you are tempted. We’re usually tempted in the areas where we are weak by our own desires and choices.

 

James 1:14 Temptation comes from the lure of our own evil desires.

 

Don’t be sucked in with the world’s wisdom. Don't blame others for your shortcomings. Remember that you will have to answer to an all-powerful God.

 

I want to be on His good side.

 

God bless you!

Houston - we have a problem
I confess that before the 2016 presidential election, I wasn’t interested or concerned about participating in government or politics.  
That changed on Nov. 8, 2016.  
It’s now painfully clear how important it is to know what our elected politicians are doing on local, state and national levels. It’s time to shake ourselves out of complacency. We must be involved in directing our basic American rights, our policing, our healthcare, our financial lives and more. Our families depend on us.
The best way to do this is to get to know your elected officials and to vote.
Consider running for office or supporting someone you think has the gifts to be a politician. Our families are in crisis, our healthcare is in crisis, immigrant families are in danger and law enforcement may not be serving the interests of people of color   We need people who serve the interests of the majority of our communities
These are my recommendations: Get together with your family, friends and…
